Given that the process hasn't changed from the one used last year, I have to admit that I'm relieved that I'm not going to the convention this year, and don't have to worry myself about booking a hotel room and all. (Especially given the fiasco that it was last year. Sure, some folks lucked out and booked where they wanted and for the duration they wanted, but I got screwed over on this, so... 'Nuff said.)
In any event, I only remembered about this today when I saw the piece of e-mail waiting for me early this morning. No wonder my stress levels are a bit down today. :)
That said, I do wish I could go to GenCon Indy this year, but it's just not possible. Too many other things going on, too much financial crunch for the year.
